Tyres need a certain depth of tread for the vehicle to pass its annual MOT. There is no need to wait until the MOT is due to find out whether your tyres will pass, as our mechanics can tell you and recommend a solution. Excessive or uneven tread wear on tyres can lead to safety issues, as bald patches could contribute to skidding and may even blow out when you need them most.
Rotating the tyres is a good habit to adopt, as front tyres and rear tyres are affected by different levels of stress. Even the stress placed on the two front tyres can differ as turning patterns will affect wear – right-hand turns generally take a bigger toll on tyres than turning left. Tyres can also have directional treads which mean they must occupy certain positions on the chassis. An expert eye can assess how best to move tyres around to assist with even wear. And rotating tyres is a lot of work for people who don’t have access to professional equipment.
